WELCOME


Porsches in Shenandoah Valley The Shenandoah Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is dedicated to enjoying Porsche cars in central Virginia. While Porsches are the common element, our members provide the club with variety and enthusiasm. We organize scenic driving tours, run six autocrosses each year, and take part in high-performance driver's education (DE) events at the Virginia International Raceway and other tracks. Our premier event is the Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM), a June weekend including a concours, lunch, driving tour, tech session, banquet, and an autocross at the Southside Speedway. We also hold a Christmas party and several other social meetings annually.

Nonmembers are welcome to participate in a social meeting, a driving tour, or an autocross. Learn more about the Shenandoah Region PCA and our upcoming events, the PCA Zone 2 comprising 10 nearby regions, the national PCA, and how to JOIN PCA.

UPCOMING EVENTS



 
First Settlers Region DE at VIR:

Join the First Settlers Region (FSR) for their Spring 2018 Drivers Education (DE) at VIR in Alton, VA. They will be running the Full Course for the three days May 25–27. This event is open to any driver 18 and over with a valid US-issued driver's license and with any make/model of car. Please bring your driver's license with you to registration.

An instructor will be assigned to Green and Blue Group drivers and there will be daily classroom sessions for the Green, Blue, and White run groups. If you are signing up as an Intermediate Solo or Advanced driver, you will be asked for references if you have not run with FSR before.

Registration Fees: Drivers: $495.00, Instructors with one student: $225.00, Instructors with two students: Complimentary (limited slots).

Are you new to DE and on the fence about whether Driver's Education is for you? Sign up for the DE INTRO! For a $50 fee, they will get you out on the track in your car with an instructor for a single session mid-day on Saturday. Standard DE safety requirements apply, so you'll need a Snell SA 2010 or newer rated helmet. FSR has just a few loaners available, so please email the registrar before you sign up if you'd like to borrow one.

Celebrating 70 Years of Porsche:

Porsche of Charlottesville has invited the Shenandoah Region to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Porsche brand at the dealership located at 1313 Richmond Road, Charlottesville, VA 22911 (map).

  • Date Saturday, June 9
  • Time 11:30 AM — 3 PM

The 70th birthday of the brand will be celebrated on June 9, 2018 and is an essential reminder and celebration of the brand history and heritage, and the community of owners and enthusiasts who share our passion.

Every Porsche regardless of the form, age, or quantity of doors, is a sports car. And a sports car is more than a typical car. Its spirit is built on shared experiences and memories. Moments so valuable and exciting that you want to share them with others. Moments that fascinate and last a lifetime. Porsche knows these moments better than any other brand. Ferry Porsche's dream of the perfect sports car has always been fueled by experiences shared from others.

We hope you can join us! If you plan to attend, please RSVP by sending an email to Chris Beverage at cbeverage@flowauto.com so he can get an accurate head count.



 
Fifth Annual Crozet Car Show:

June is a beautiful time to drive your amazing Porsche and come out to Crozet for the Fifth Annual Crozet Car Show (Facebook page). This year the show will be held at Claudius Crozet Park, 1076 Claudius Crozet Park (map) and will start at 9 AM and end at 1 PM on Saturday June 16. Last year we had a host of very nice Porsches in attendance. Let's see if we can get some German steel to the park again this year.

The entry fee is $20 per car and the proceeds will go to support the Claudius Crozet Park. This is not a PCA event.

Our Porsches will fall into the Exotic and Foreign category for any awards. If we have at least 8 Porsches, there could be a Porsche-specific trophy.

Please RSVP ASAP to Hank Weil at weilly@aol.com so that an accurate count can be provided to the organizers in order to set-up a separate parking area and a Porsche-specific trophy.
